This Friday 9th March we’re proud to join forces with businesses across Cumbria as we celebrate the second Cumbria Family Business Awards. The county’s family firms will battle it out in 11 categories, with the winners from each then competing for the coveted ‘Outstanding Family Business of the Year.’ With nearly 90% of businesses in Cumbria being family run, and with Armstrong Watson’s 150 years of experience advising and supporting family firms, we are delighted to see the awards return for a second year and repeat our role as a main sponsor of the event. This year we’ve sponsored the sought after ‘Food and Drink Establishments’ award.
Commenting on judging, Paul Dickson, Chief Executive said, “Cumbria is recognised as one of Britain’s foodie havens, the quality of the establishments across the county is remarkable. By setting such high standards the families behind these businesses have cemented Cumbria’s reputation as a go-to destination. The finalists are all brilliant examples of why Cumbria is so loved and we wish them all good luck!”
Best of luck to all the family business finalists and also to the nominees for ‘Employee of the Year’ voted for by the general public.
